My dad died 15 years ago this Father’s Day. He dropped dead of a heart attack while he was dying of cancer. I felt robbed having prepared myself for saying good bye over the coming months and instead he was just gone.

Awesome post, Kari. Loved it. ox
Thanks. I knew you would dig it:)
And now your dad is teaching me some things! I love UF not FU. The “wow” thing is awesome. (I think I have started saying wow a lot more since I’ve known you!) LOVE that he expressed his emotions and believed men could and should cry. And my favorite quote is what he said to himself in the mirror.
Wow is really not used enough in the world. Thanks!
